Hello, it’s Mei-Yan. How are you doing today?
This will be my first post in about a week or so. I guess one reason why I am not posting as frequently is because I do not have many or any visitors. It could be because I am not writing great posts or the posts I wrote were not interesting.
But my friend re-assured me the other day that because I am still very new to this, I cannot expect anything. I should keep on writing, because someone will find my blog one day, and be entertained by the stories I wrote or the things I have to say. 🙂
So for this post, I would like to tell a little story. A story that is about others happiness over yours…
“Everyone is waiting for a certain someone.” -Cafe.Waiting.Love.
Girls who are waiting for that guy to sweep them off their feet.
Guys who are waiting for that girl to walk by so he can let her fall into his arms.
But for every couple is that one friend, that one friend who is single but built the relationship. This friend, a girl or a guy, is the one who brought two people together and cultivated their love. (In this case, we are going to use a girl for the role of the Matchmaker Friend.) She watches over their relationship and does everything she can to reassure both parties’ concerns.
Okay everyone, meet Tina. Tina is who we call the Matchmaker Friend. She herself is single and has never dated before, but she somehow has the capability to bring people together. “Now, you would wonder, how can someone who can bring others together not find someone for herself?”
The answer… “Well, I am not really sure.”
It all began one summer when Tina ended up bringing together her friend Jerry with her classmate, Ellen. I guess we can say that Jerry and Ellen had feelings for each other before Tina officially got them together. You see, Jerry and Ellen met before. Although they were not friends, or even classmates, Jerry use to see Ellen all the time in school. Whereas Ellen actually never paid attention to Jerry. She sort of knew they went to the same school, but besides that, she never knew who Jerry was.
Tina and Jerry are friends and Tina and Ellen are classmates. Strictly speaking, Tina barely knew Jerry and Ellen. Jerry was a friend she lost contact with, and Ellen was just a girl in her class. “But you know what, the relationship of Jerry and Ellen brought these three people together.” (No, don’t worry. Tina does not get involved in the relationship, but she is a third-wheel.)
At first, Tina did not want to be apart of their developing relationship, for Tina was not sure how it worked. She herself has never been in a relationship, and her crushes were often unrequited. But she did love Love Stories. (To be honest, Jerry and Ellen was not the first relationship Tina oversaw…)
That summer, Jerry, Ellen, and Tina all volunteered together. Although each party had their own schedule conflicts, they each still took time to volunteer. Tina volunteered because she wanted to. Jerry and Ellen volunteered for more opportunities to get to know each other, and (of course) to spend time together.
So, how does Tina play the role of a Matchmaker? We shall find out soon!
Thank you for reading!
And always, Keep on DayDreaming! ❤
